we have spent the last few weeks telling you about the suppress sieve voter laws hastily passed by republican-led state legislatures claiming to be defending democracy against the threat of voter fraud. we have also told you that the laws themselves are the real threat to our democracy, because they would by design disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters. well, on thursday, republicans finally found evidence that the myth of voter fraud is very real and they found it right in their own party. investigators in six florida counties have opened a criminal inquiry into hundreds of cases of suspected voter fraud committed by a gop consulting firm. the republican national committee hired to register republican voters for the november 6th election. the fraud accusations against the firm strategic allied consulting began when 304 registration forms were dropped off at a palm beach elections office. 106 of them were flagged as fraudulent. after that initial discovery, possible election fraud was also reported in florida's os coloo sa, pos coe, santa rosa lee and clay counties. if
or woman's right to protest? >> translator: yes. it depends on the laws of any nation. all nations' laws are not equal. they differ. in most countries in one way or another this is allowed under the laws. but fundamentally, i do agree, certainly people must be allowed to express their own opinions freely. freedom is part of the essential rights of all nations. no one has the right to take that away. >> if that is the case, why has the daughter of the former president of iran been imprisoned for protesting against your regime? >> in iran there's only one regime so perhaps they're protesting against that. and in iran the judicial branch is not under the power of the government, of the administration. they have their own laws, and that's what they follow. and we have no interference in that. and the government has paved the way for the highest form of freedom for all people, and you see that comfortably people criticize, people sometimes trespass the borderlines of proper protest, and they insult one another. as a president, i'm in the middle of the people of iran without drawing any border
's positions and their plans when it comes to your health. >> since president obama's health care law was enact aed, 3.1 million people under the age of 26 are now covered by their parents' plans and preventive care is covered 100% by insurance companies. seniors, in particular, have benefitted on prescription drugs. >> seniors who fall in the coverage gap known as the doughnut hole will start getting some help. they will receive $250 to help pay for prescriptions and that will, over time, fill in the doughnut hole. >> reporter: 5.5 million seniors have saved a total of nearly $4.5 billion on prescription day since the law was enact aed. that's according to the health and human services department. >> i have strengthened medicare and added years to the life of medicare and we did it by getting rid of taxpayer subsi y subsiddisubsidd subsidies. >> reporter: by 2014 everyone is required to have health insurance. insurers can't deny you if you have a pre-existing condition or reduce your rates. the law planned to expand medicaid to the states with the aim of covering 17 million more people. but t

[ applause ] and there's a long-term threat to our military capability, and to our national security, and it relates to something that fuels and builds our military. and that's our economy. you have to have a strong economy. >> president obama was rallying supporters in virginia beach. that was a couple minutes ago. he talked about creating opportunities for everybody. >> we don't believe anybody is entitled to success in this country. we don't believe government should help folks who aren't willing to try to
law school graduates, romney also was a harvard mba, will square off and try to tell americans that they're very relatable. [laughter] we'll look forward to that. all right, chris, thank you. >> thank you. megyn: well, these debates, i mean, they're great theater for the american public, and they really do help a lot of americans decide whether it's just a visceral reaction or i like that guy better, they help americans decide. and a lot of the times it's the gaffes that turn people against the candidates. these campaigns, they're searching for the one defining moment, but of course they're also hoping it won't be an awkward one that sinks their campaign. recall 1992 when president george h.w. bush checks his watch during a debate with then-candidate bill clinton. the gesture gave voters the impression that he was impatient and uninterested. during the 2000 presidential debates, al gore got up in governor george w. bush's grill. look. [laughter] just a classic moment where he was invading his personal space a little, and, boy, did he take some flak. mr. bush gave him a nod and
having an abortion is required to pass a law. does that mean as a parent do i like it? do i like plan "b" or parents not being notified, no, but what i like less is the united states has the highest incidence of teen pregnancy in the industrialized world. they drop babies into toilets and not prepared to raise. >> bill: you see the lesser of two evils. i disagree with you. >> i totally agree with you that parents should have the ability to make all decisions, especially this one with their children. here is the headline for me. do you want to know that an in all of new york city only one to two percent of all parents decide to opt out of this program. first of all you should be opting in. that is not wait it works. only 1-2% opted out, which means 99% parents --. >> bill: i don't think they know about it. the other thing. >> that is criminal. >> bill: parents got to be active but the other thing is. as a judge the state is saying, that is what new york is saying, we don't care about statutory rape. if a 12-year-old is pregnant that is a crime but we're not going to tell the parents that
, over what he's called obamacare. the president's health care law. in an interview with nbc news, romney highlighted his own massachusetts health care reform as proof that he does, in fact, care about 100% of americans. >> throughout this campaign as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in my state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> john heilemann, shining a light now on his record on health care in massachusetts. remarkable. >> and offering a tacit endorsement of obamacare in the process. look, governor romney is -- one of the great stories i think over the last two years that he's been running, at bottom, at heart, he is proud of the law. and he tried to find a way in the primaries to be for his own law, not give that up and say, i'm proud of what we did in massachusetts, but he knew that he couldn't be -- he had to figure out a way to also be against obamacare. he found himself in this ridi
in the nation that has done this for kids and for teenagers. governor jerry brown signed this ban in into law over this past weekend and tweeted about it. let me read one of his tweets. this bill bans nonscientific, quote, therapies that have driven young people to depression and suicide. joining me is david pickup, a reparative therapist and spokesman for the national association of research and therapy of homosexuality, he is getting miked up. also with me right now is cnn's senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen. so, elizabeth, as we await david, just begin with what we know about this so-called reparative therapy. >> the american psychological association had a task force that took a long look at this. and here's what they came up with. they said there is no good studies showing it works or doesn't work. so no good studies showing this works. they say some people have been harmed by it, depression, other problems. and this is a quote, there is insufficient evidence to support the use of psychological interventions to change sexual orientation. >> okay. >> plainly spoken. >> hold tha
's that encouraging. there's something in the law called party to a crime. basically it means in for a penny, in for a pound. so even if -- we saw a defense attorney saying on there, but my client didn't throw any punches. but if your client stood there and encouraged and aided and abetted and cheered them on, they are just as responsible, under the law. and they can also be charge with the crime of aggravated assault and get up to 20 years if that's what the judge thinks is appropriate. >> how about a defense attorney saying, okay, my client is one of these girls, she's 16 years old, no priors, still she's facing that much time, it's that severe? >> it is because aggravated assault has a range, like every crime. it's not what we call a mandatory minimum. it's a one to 20 range. looking at as low as one year of probation or 20 years of prison. it's all within the discretion of the judge. and it will depend on those different factors. can a defense attorney say, but my client has no priors, never been in trouble before and she is the one who didn't throw the punch. so even though she kind of
about the forced ultrasound law passed by republicans in the legislature in virginia this year, signed into law by the republican governor in the state, bob mcdonald. virginia voters opposed that law by 17 points. the anti-abortion crusade that has been undertaken this year by republican-led state government in virginia is not popular in virginia. and now virginia women are prepared to take it out on the presidency, right? they're planning to vote against the republicans' candidate for president in their state by 18 points. and that was the context for a really important move made by virginia's republican attorney general this week, a move that could be important for the presidential race in virginia. this week the attorney general certified a new set of regulations targeted only at abortion clinics in the united states. the rules are just targeting abortion providers. it red tape specifically designed is to make it economically impossible to operate an abortion clinic in virginia. that's what's expected to happen in the state. most clinics are in danger of being closed once the rules
supposed allies, calling on the u.n. to pass laws that would trump the united states constitution. bill? bill: jonathan, thanks. we'll be back in touch when there are headlines today as expected. jonathan hunt at the u.n.. martha: take a look at the u.s. economy this morning. there is a new report that has some not very good news on this. families are seeing a lot less money in their paychecks according to this new report. it finds the median household income fell by 1.1% to under $51,000 last month. you take a look at the chart on this since 2009 and it is not a pretty picture. it is a significant drop since the president came into office. stuart varney joins me now. he is the host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, good morning. that's a tough chart. >> yes, it is a tough chart. it paints a picture of real distress in middle america. buying power down, our standard of living falling and hardship, hardship right there in the middle of america is actually give gettingous. -- getting worse. let me give you key number. from the start of the obama administration the

things. it's our social constructs. so whether or not those laws would influence you. if you had one drop of black blood, you would be jim crowed. and indigenous people, there are federal laws based on how far you have to trace back your an ses ri to be able to call one's self-part of an indigenous community. and the second thing, this is part of a political angst where everybody is going to have to show their papers. what's black today may not be black tomorrow. i live in new orleans where there's a whole community of people who are color who don't fit in the normal racial hierarchy of the u.s. but if you show your papers, the president of the united states has to demonstrate he's american e. if you're going to show up to vote, you're going to to have to prove precisely who you are and show multiple forms of i.d. obviously, as you've been talking about, the paper please laws around immigration and those who are going to be profiled racially based on how they look about whether or not they have a legal status or undocumented status. all of this is part of a growing anxiety about who we ar
and law enforcement career battling human smugglers. deputies in his county seven miles north of the border last year engaged in 350 high speed pursuits involving drug and human smugglers. shoo they look at these people, these humans, as product. they don't care about their safety. they'll leave them for dead. they get in a wreck, and just walk away. >> reporter: he strongly supportsary air laws cracking down on illegal immigration. >> the impact has been so tremendous. not only billions of dollars in impact to our budget, but the crime that is are associated. many crimes committed against illegals themselves. >> reporter: the sheriff and the student one trying to enforce the law, the other trying to stay a step ahead of it. angelica hernandez, the little girl who couldn't speak english this week begins work on her masters degree at stanford. hernandez graduated from arizona state despite losing the scholarship twice because of arizona laws restricting benefits for illegal immigrants. >> being undocumented, it's something that gives you so many different qualities and strength
and a string of decisions. and the obama administration has said that it glees. it's not defending the law, but a group from the republican congress is defending it. >> they're also going to have to look at california's prop 8, to review that, the amendment to the constitution is that marriage is between a man and a woman. >> they look at that and the lower courts threw that out. they said that under the supreme court's precedence in another case about gay rights, that the california voters could not amend the constitution to exclude same-sex marriage once same-sex marriage had already been offered in california. >> higher education admissions. at the heart of this case, abgait fisher, because fisher says she was denied to the university of texas because she is white. what factors would affect their ruling? >> the court has ruled before that diversity is a compelling government interest. the government in other words has an interest, universities have an interest in compiling diverse classes of students, that diversity helps everyone and that they can look at an applicants's race in making
this league. we got sued by the nfl when we pass add law to allows sports betting in new jersey, because their issue was the integrity of the game. you can't have it both ways. you can't have fake officials and, again, the mayor could put a uniform on and do a better job that these guys are doing. high school lingerie football league officials that were fired. it's not what we're paying for. fraud is when you pay for something and you get a lesser product than what you paid for. this is wrong. >> okay. so bottom line, mike, what chances does this -- this bill that you've introduced -- have you introduced it yet? i'm not sure. what are the chances it will pass the new jersey state legislature and chris christie will sign it into law? >> listen, i can't get a promise from the governor. i haven't spoken to him yet but i can tell you i'm the senate president and can pass it in the senate and lie work with the assembly to get it passed. look, this is just a fairness issue. this is wrong. players safety is at risk, and let's get beyond this. do the right thing by the american public. these guy
mean, that plays right into the arizona "show me your papers" law, the big controversy we've had about that. what was your response to that? >> well, my response right now is that i don't have to be -- i am a black woman, but i'm not only offended by these remarks, as a black woman, i don't have to be native american to be offended. i'm offended as an american. scott brown isn't just a candidate. he is a sitting united states senator, and i want someone in that seat who subscribes to eplurs by eple pl plurbis enum. out of many, we are one. this is a consistent tactic. i think east demonstrated in his voting record that he has sided with big oil and billionaires and now i fear he's exposed that he'll side with bigots as well. >> ayanna pressley, city council woman in boston, great to have you with us tonight, thanks so much. >>> there's a lot more coming up in the next half hour of "the ed show," stay with us. >>> on friday i looked at the real polling numbers by an organization that i can't name, but i trust it. >> the romney campaign joins the growing number of republican poll truther

were he president and this passed he would sign it into law. sign into law the requirement y'all come up with $6,400 a year more for the same benefits. and now they say to us, oh, no, no, no. joe, we don't have that plan anymore. well, guess what? they got a message to the american people. they said we got a new plan. new plan. that's going to work better and save medicare. that plan, though, a harvard study comes out and says, that new plan still a voucher, would cost somebody 55 years old right now by the time they get on it $60,000 a year more over the life of medicare. ladies and gentlemen, the reason i bother to tell you this is, the reason i bother to tell you this is, the fact of the matter is it goes to motive. it goes to motive. can you imagine? can those of you who know me? can you imagine me voting for a proposal adding $6,400 a year to the cost of medicare or 60,000 over the life of it? ladies and gentlemen, the neighborhood i come from -- i mean this sincerely -- the neighborhood i come from, that would mean the people getting medicare would not be able to get medicare. t
sanjay gupta zeros in what's at stake. >> reporter: since president obama's health care law was enacted 3.1 million people under the age of 26 are now carried by their parents' plans and preventive care is carried 100% by insurance companies. seniors in particular have benefitted on prescription drugs. >> seniors who fall in the coverage gap known as the donut hole will start getting some help. they'll receive 250 dollars to help pay for prescriptions and that will, over time, fill in the donut hole. >> reporter: 5.5 million seniors have saved a total of nearly $4.5 billion on prescription drugs since the law was enacted, according to the health and human services department. he also plans to slow spending on medicare. >> i have strengthened medicare. we have added years to the life of medicare. we did it by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies to insurance companies that weren't making people healthier. >> reporter: by 2014, the law requires everyone to he health insurance whether they purchase it themselves or through their employeers. insurance can't deny you if you have a pre-existing co
's garbage. romney makes his money from investments, that's the lawful tax rate. he pays it. yet, he is some kind of dodge greed head. and it's wrong. and that's what's going on. and the media drives that am i wrong? >> the media certainly don't often point out that we have a pretty steeply progressive tax code in which the higher income brackets pay the overwhelming share of american taxes. not just a larger amount. but a much larger share. and that the people as romney correctly pointed out. certainly the case that nearly half the people don't pay any federal income taxes at all. none. >> bill: i don't know why governor romney isn't more forceful in defending himself though. he did make a mistake dodging pelley's question about what deductions he might consider cutting. and he didn't have to say specifically because we all know that, you know, as soon as he says well i cut this then all hell breaks loose and the industries go crazy. he could have said i'm looking at a whole bunch of them. >> he could have said look, everything will be on the table. he could say i'm not sure that would have
are required by law not to tell anybody no so we do provide care, but there are some thr pills in half beuse theyt can't affo it. there are some people out there who don't go to get care because they feel responsible to pay for it and they know they can't. but i think romney's point here was that we have a health care system that is providing a lot of care that we are not paying for, and that's what he was addressing. >> paul, another sound bite from "60 minutes" last night, something the president said the romney campaign has been all over today. let's play what the president said. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. there will probably be some times where we bump up against some of these countries and have strong disagreements, but i do think that over the long term, we're more likely to get a middle east and north africa that is more peaceful, more prosperous and more aligned with our interests. >> now, mitt romney today has been all over the phrase bumps in the road. was that a poor choice is n rd on the pdent's part as
